This year for Christmas (ot)

This year for Christmas we are not wanting gifts for our kids. We will get them a few things that they need but every year people go overboard. The kids closets are full, toy boxes are full, storage attic is getting full....everything is overwhelming for me and the kids and things get forgotten/lost/not played with. We will be adopting a family either locally or I think Khols has a program. We will ask that our family, if they want to, give gifts/donations to the family we "adopt" for Christmas. If they still want to get us something, we'll ask for something handmade or I guess gift cards.

What do you ladies think of this idea?

I think that's a wonderful idea! We are doing a super small Christmas and making the majority of presents for people.

I think it's a good idea! I've already bought Lorelei's Christmas, but we plan on donating old toys to help make space for new as well as teach Lorelei how to give.
